  • LOS ANGELES (AP) — As superhero summers go, this one is truly super.
    Amid one of the most-promising box-office seasons Hollywood has ever served up, three movies stand above the rest.
    The first weekend in May brings “The Avengers,” the ensemble adventure teaming Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man with such fellow Marvel Comics heroes as Thor, Captain America and the Incredible Hulk.
    “The Amazing Spider-Man” follows over the Fourth of July as Marvel’s web-slinger gets a fresh origin story, with Andrew Garfield taking over as teen-turned-superhero Peter Parker.

  • Stephanie Sydoriak will sign the biography of her parents, “An Ocean Between: 100% American – 100% Ukrainian,” at 6 p.m. Thursday at Otowi Station Bookstore.
    In a recent interview, Sydoriak discussed her approach to writing the biography of her parents. Her main sources were her father’s scrapbook and the stories her parents told her.

  • “Russian music always touches my soul” and “I really like this symphony,” are comments made by two violinists in the Los Alamos Symphony Orchestra, in reference to the rarely played symphony the group will perform as part of the Spring Concert on April 27.
    The work is not by one of the giants of Russian composers — Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich or Borodin, to name a few — but by a relatively unknown composer, Vasily Kalinnikov (1866-1901).

  • The Family YMCA is taking registration for its May 5 and June 2  First Aid, Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) certification courses.  The courses, taught by American Red Cross certified instructors, are generally scheduled for the first Saturday of each month throughout the year.
    First Aid training includes the basics of wound care, bleeding control and bandaging and provides information about poisoning, sudden illness, and how to care for other injuries.
    CPR training includes how to respond to emergency situations, recognize the signs of a heart attack and provide care for an adult who stops breathing, is choking or whose heart stops beating.

  • Family Strengths Network would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all those who participated in Family Festival.
    About 500 people attended Family Festival this year; its success is dependent on the volunteers and organizations that participate.
    We could not run this event without the help of our event coordinator, Karen Greenfield, the many volunteers from Key Club, Natural Helpers, RSVP, Beta Sigma Phi, LANB, Los Alamos Middle School, the FSN Board and many other individuals.
    We are also grateful to all the businesses and organizations that came to share the great activities that Los Alamos has to offer to families.

  • Los Alamos Police Department in collaboration with a variety of agencies will present “Every 15 Minutes,” at Los Alamos High School today.
    The event is an opportunity to educate students about the gravity of topics like drinking and driving, prior to large-scale events like the prom.
